Our upcoming blood drive goal on May 25th is to recruit 43 donors. Think about all of the lives we can touch by signing up to donate. A typical donation takes less than one hour. If you can’t give, you can still make an impact by volunteering to support the drives and encouraging others to give using your social media channels and network.
Every unit we donate at our blood drive can help save up to three lives. Each recipient of that blood donation has his or her own story. He or she could be an accident or trauma victim, cancer patient, a mother giving birth, a premature baby, a transplant recipient or surgical candidate. Our impact goes beyond that patient – it is multiplied by the impact it has on that person’s loved ones who are thankful for the unit we donated.
The American Red Cross could not meet patient needs and touch all of those lives if it were not for organizations like ours. We are proud to support our community, our country and be a part of the impact that the Red Cross makes every day.
The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.
Remember that every blood donation has a story attached to it. The story of why we donated; each volunteer’s story of why they helped; the story of why we hosted the blood drives, and the recipient’s story when they receive a generous donation. Consider making your personal story part of the collective stories.
Thank you for supporting the American Red Cross blood program!
